Janet Jackson Biography

Damita, Janet Jo Jackson is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and dancer who was born on May 16, 1966. She is known for her avant-garde, socially concerned, and sexually explicit music, as well as her extravagant stage presentations. Her sound and choreography aided MTV’s expansion, allowing her to climb to fame while breaking through gender and racial barriers.

She made her debut at the MGM Grand as the Jackson family’s ninth and youngest child. Following the release of her third and fourth studio albums, Control (1986) and Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989), she became a pop icon after securing a recording contract with A&M Records in 1982. Jackson secured the first of two multimillion-dollar contracts with Virgin Records in 1991, positioning her as one of the industry’s highest-paid musicians.

Jackson is one of the world’s best-selling music artists, having sold over 100 million records. Five Grammy Awards, eleven Billboard Music Awards, eleven American Music Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and eight Guinness World Records entries are among her many honors. She was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.

Husband

Wissam Al Mana, 47, is Janet’s third and latest husband. Before marrying in 2012, the Qatari billionaire CEO dated the “Rhythm Nation” vocalist for several years. Janet kept this connection carefully covert, not even revealing her marriage until 2013.

But, sadly, only three months after the birth of their first child, the pair called it quits, and Janet announced it herself in a rare Instagram video. Janet and Wissam’s divorce has yet to be formalized, though. Regardless of the situation, the ex-couples are still co-parenting their kid.
